  1. Isnt it about the speed in which these carbs break down.
    People ate carbs in other countries, and you say they were fine, until sugar.
    You have said bread breaks down just as fast as sugar, but does Rice, and other carbs that these people were eating in other countries like you say that had no problems, break down as fast as sugar or bread. That is what I learned , that it is about the speed of the break down of carbs.
    You say the stomach can absorb sugar/glucose –
    I wonder why, the stomach can absorb sugar/glucose from a evolutional reason.

  2. This is what "THE answer" should be… not all those "run and do crunches until u die" and eat 5 small carby meals garbage. Real food as much as possible, avoiding chemicals, toxins and processed substances. I have started that more than a month ago – never had more energy and now i feel better, lost like 14 kilos already, I really want to stick to fasting and extremely low carb forever. Thanks for making these videos, u are the reason I started my change 🙂

  3. I had been on a version of the Atkins diet many years ago, I was 18 years old or so, I lost almost 20 lbs in one month, but then I fainted at a supermarket and got on the ambulance into ER, they said my blood sugar was too low, put me on IV with glucose and gave me chocolate. I started eating carbs again and gained it all back just as quickly. Since then I have been very skeptical of keto. Probably the problem was in my young age.

  4. Beautiful explanation and in my view and extensive experience having tried many diets for years , this advise is spot on. What I have found is if you are living in the western world the types diets we are encouraged to eat so unnatural that it enivitably makes us sick so we need the keto diet to detox the body of all the sugars we eat and to repair damage to our liver , kidneys and other organs destroyed by sugar. In the natural world a balanced diet would consist of natural animal products like meat fish eggs vegetation and natural carbs like yams and berries that's it. This is the perfect balanced diet. We would probably only eat once a day and everything would be fine.

  5. If I stop consuming carbs on Sunday evening I am in mild ketosis by Thursday. How would this compare to others experience? Can number of days required to enter ketosis be used as a rough indicator for level of insulin resistance?

  6. I'm skinny but am having a hard time with carbs (suspecting Candida /gut issues etc). Can you be insulin resistant even if you are slim?

  7. WOW this is amazing. I have broken the machine. I had hoped to get my Blood sugar down to Hba1c down to about 30 mmol, they are 39 at the moment. I am right to double down on my efforts ! You are an inspiration thank you.

  8. I have all those dis eases. :(…How old do i look in this pic. I was 53 now 55. I broke it by dieting not abuse. Always ate veggies, not a soda drinker, not alcohol, never tried any drugs including marijuana. I do like sweets but i had rules in place for those.

  9. May I ask what diet do you recommend for athletes like middle distance runners? There are usually two high intensity trainings in the week and without enough carbs, I feel like crap. How do I preserve good health and lean body without energy deficiency? My method now is like 8 hour eating window starting with carbs and last meal without carbs. After some hard workout, I eat carbs also at dinner. Thanks for the answer.

  10. Excellent analogy about broken machinery. I'm an ER physician and I use the opportunity to talk Keto lifestyle to my patients. They will listen when they come in suffering from complications of metabolic syndrome. Using your explanation will help me convey the principles to my patients.

  11. You have an amazing way to explain complicated things in a clear and simple way. Thank you for another educational, enjoyable, common sense video perfectly explained!

  12. hello Sten, firstly thank u very much for your attention, i have diabetes insípidus . it is soooo horrendous! i can't sleep properly or do anything without beingg always urged to go!
    Do u know how to reverse it or at least improve it?

  13. At age 70 I have been diabetic for 29 years, insulin dependant for 13. After 17 days on a very low carb high fat diet my insulin dosage has dropped by 2/3. With MUCH tighter numbers than before. I for one will never go back to even moderate carbs. I expect in another 2 weeks to be off insulin completely. In addition to the lowered insulin dependency my arthritis has moderated a huge amount. It's true that my Doc. changed up my diet quite a bit from the standard keto. His explanation was it was done in order to get the inflammation out of my body, and it appears to have done wonders. Dr. Ekberg and others with the same message are still in the minority. That is changing. Rapidly. Throw sugar and ESPECIALLY fructose in the garbage if you're young. And start limiting carbs. All the grains are HIGHLY genetically modified from those our ancestors ate. That is not a good thing. Cage free eggs, free range chicken and beef, organic veggies. That's the ticket. The change in me in just over two weeks is incredible. PLEASE listen to and heed the advice of Dr. Ekberg.Never GET where I've been.

  14. Dr.Ekberg you are so wonderful,you have such a calm voice.Your videos are so inspiring.I wish you were my doctor.Carbs to me are like poison because I have abused my body for so long.thank you for the good info.
